New characters and new storylines promised.
Electronic Arts has confirmed that its highly successful FIFA franchise will continue with FIFA 18 this year. During its earnings call for investors following its Q3 financial report, EA CEO Andrew Wilson also noted that Season 2 of The Journey, the single-player story campaign of FIFA 17, would be included.
“FIFA 18 will build on the foundation we created with story mode this year, bringing players back to The Journey with Season 2, featuring new characters and new storylines.
“Our development team in Vancouver is delivering deeply innovative new experiences across this year’s game, including an Ultimate Team, and creating the most emotionally immersive and connected FIFA we have ever produced.”
The Journey Season 1 seems to have been a major hit with Wilson stating that “more than 10 million fans have played The Journey, and Ultimate Team players are up nearly 10 percent year-over-year.”
